Swingline® Launches Industry's First Cordless Rechargeable Stapler
Stapler to Provide Unprecedented Ease-of-Use Wherever Work Needs to be Done
Lincolnshire, Ill. (July 29, 2002) - Rechargeable technology is breaking into office product tools as Swingline introduces the first Cordless Rechargeable Stapler, an electric stapler powered by a rechargeable battery that combines unmatched quality, precision and ease-of-use with the flexibility to work anywhere. The Cordless Rechargeable Stapler is the latest addition to Swingline's ease-of-use line of tools, which are engineered to take the pain, strain and frustration out of stapling.
Just as rechargeable flashlights, power tools and razors free consumers to use everyday electric tools whenever and wherever they choose, the Cordless Rechargeable Stapler provides the same convenience and power to on-the-go professionals who demand premium performance. Powered by a rechargeable Ni-Mh battery versus an electrical cord, the Cordless Rechargeable Stapler is the first electric stapler not confined to workspaces, affording the time saving, ease-of-use benefits of electric stapling whether professionals work from an office, hotel or home. It also eliminates strain that can be associated with day-to-day stapling tasks by providing all the power needed for each stapling procedure.
"Swingline's Cordless Rechargeable Stapler marks a milestone because it brings rechargeable convenience and superior performance to a whole new area of work," said Jon Swirsley, senior marketing manager. "As trends in work volume and environments continue to evolve, consumers want workspace tools that are mobile, efficient and intuitive. Swingline's Cordless Rechargeable Stapler provides unprecedented levels of operation and flexibility tailored to the demands of busy and diverse work tasks and schedules."
Swingline's Cordless Rechargeable Stapler sets a new standard for convenience and function. It provides up to 2,000 staples per single charge and can penetrate up to 20 sheets of paper. Designed to operate when used by hand or in a cradle with both 25- and 45-degree vertical tilts, the stapler also offers unprecedented function and range of motion. Additional benefits include new technology that minimizes staple jams, a low staple indicator which prompts users to reload and a stand-on-end design which frees up valuable workspace.
The Cordless Rechargeable Stapler will be available for purchase nationwide at office product dealers and office product superstores and at www.swingline.com. List price is $119.95.
